I tried different styles of writing and stepped outside of my comfort zone to do it. I hadn't written many persuasive essays before, and I did one that I actually really enjoyed. I also met and interacted with kids I wouldn't normally on an everyday basis. Regardless of where they were from, or what interests they had, we all had something in common. —2022 Writing Workshop Student
Workshops offer students the ability to have an immersive learning experience in a subject of their choosing. Topics range from robotics to creative writing and meet for roughly the equivalent of three class periods, six days a week.
Workshops are taught by a talented array of Choate faculty, professors, professional artists, and experienced educators. Afternoons and weekends are filled with activities, athletics, and special events organized by the Choate Student Activities Center.
2023 Daily Schedule
Workshop Boarding Students
All Boarding Students live in Choate Rosemary Hall dorms staffed with a Head of House and resident advisers who help to build community, support healthy study habits, and guide students through the residential life experience. Students may opt to add test preparation for the SAT or SSAT for a fee.
Workshop Day Students
Day Students who reside close enough to commute to campus for workshops are welcome to do so. Day students may choose to participate in afternoon activities, athletics, and weekend trips; however, they are not required. Students may opt to add test preparation for the SAT or SSAT for a fee.
I chose Choate Summer Programs because I got the opportunity to explore my passion in creative writing! My teacher offered a safe and immersive place to share our writing and suggestions for peers. I also enjoyed bonding with people from all over the US and the world! —2022 Writing Workshop Student
